Dead Red

This is the third in the series (Sacrifice Fly; Crooked Numbers), but it is not necessary to have read the others. O'Mara spends too much energy on quips and superfluous descriptions in the beginning, which stalls the momentum in this otherwise solid crime novel. The character of Edgar, the socially awkward techno nerd who assists Ray, is a welcome reprieve from the usual cast of characters. A definite purchase if you own the series; optional for those who have a strong following of gritty crime novels. [Library marketing.]
